Do not use exFAT with Macs. I have hundreds of Pro Tools sessions corrupted by that. The cross-compatibility of exFAT is overstated because the Mac implementation is not really good.

(the best solution for cross compatibility is install MacDrive on the PC and format the attached drive to HFS+ on the Mac before plugging it into the PC. Both will then be able to read/write and the overhead is low enough you can actually run the sessions on the PC directly)
